THBT humans are not experiencing (nor under threat of) overpopulation

Kryptic

Debate Impossible to accept. Read the rules and comment if you want to join debate. I do not plan to open this debate until at least 3 days later. Failure to abide by the format or terms of the debate will result in a loss of conduct during voting stage. If Con finds the terms to be unreasonable or inaccurate then he or she may alter the terms, but only with an argument as to why. Burden of Proof is on both sides. Terms: Overpopulation: Overpopulation is a function of the number of...

racing games are not part of the sports genre.

Racing is a sport. It requires good training to be good at and stuff, however, it should not considered to be part of the sports genre, because mechanics are different. Not even a NASCAR game would belong in the sports category. Racing games tend to be more about speed-based challenges, where as sports are about score-based challenges. I think racing should stay as it's own genre in the gaming industry....

Note: Sidewalker has taken this debate. It will remain up until we start it in around a week :) Note: This debate should be impossible to accept. If you find a clever way to work around the rules, you automatically forfeit all seven points. If you would like to debate, please say so in the comments after reading this opening round.I do not plan to start this for a week or so. I started early as I don't think many may be willing to take this.

The XXII amendment of the U.S. Constitution should be repealed.

Blade-of-Truth

R: The XXII amendment of the U.S. Constitution should be repealed. Text of XXII Amendment https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twenty-second_Amendment_to_the_United_States_Constitution#Text For clarity there is a difference between term limits, which limit the number of terms a person may serve as president and term lengths which are 4 years. This debate is about term limits... not term lengths. Rematch!!!! Blade of truth and I re-doing this debate. http://www.debate.org/debates/The-XXII-...

The Kalam Cosmological Argument is Sound

Miles_Donahue
SnapDragonFizzle

SnapDragonFizzle and I will debate whether or not the kalam cosmological argument is a sound argument for the existence of God. I will be taking the affirmative and bearing the burden of proof, and my opponent, the negative. A sound argument is any argument that (1) is deductively valid, and (2) has true premises. Notice, I will not attempt to show that the premises of the KCA are known with certainty, but merely that they are more plausibly true tha...

advertisement leads to rise in economy

Aalia

Why do most people prefer Coca-Cola to some other cola? Why do some people prefer Calvin Klein underwear to some other unadvertised brand? Are the advertised products functionally better? Not necessarily. But, in the mind of the consumer, advertising has given these brands added value. In the mid-1960s, a famous psychologist named Ernest Dichter asserted that a product"s image, created in part by advertising and promotion, is an inherent feature of the product itself. Subsequent studies sho...
